Artist's Description

Hibbertia menai. Photo taken in situ using natural light, Maandowie Bushland Reserve, Loftus, NSW, Australia

In 2002/2003 this plant was discovered in Maandowie Bushland Reserve, Loftus, NSW, Australia during bush regeneration activities. Formal identification was not done due to the regeneration work load.

In 2004 it was found growing in the Menai area, about 5 kilometers from Maandowie. It was sent for formal identification and was confirmed to be a hitherto unknown species of Hibbertia. There are about 60 known specimens growing in the Menai area and 90 in Maandowie.

Due to its limited range and the small number of plants it has officially been classified as rare and endangered by the NSW government.
